A little while back someone posted concerning the living conditions of the Ts at Petcos accross the country. Well I decided to e-mail them and tell them what they are doing wrong with their setups and how to fix them. I explained the water with the sponge in it, the substrate, lighting, leaving of uneaten crickets etc. I didn't really expect to hear much back from them. Well, this morning I got an e-mail in my box saying something like "you comments have been forwarded to the appropriate persons" etc etc. I was figuring "appropriate persons" meaning the trash can. About 10 minutes after checking my e-mail I get a call on my cell phone. Its the manager at the local petco calling to discuss the Ts enclosures. Make a long story short we went over a lot of stuff concerning the Ts and he sounded truly interested and asked for my input on a lot of stuff. Everything from substrate to the water, lighting, everything. He explained that they would be soon changing to bed-a-beast type stuff (not the best but better than bark chips). He said it was hard for them to use a product they don't sell (potting soil, vermiculite etc). Anyways I was glad he called and he told me if I had any more input to not hesitate to contact him. So e-mail petco if you feel they're not doing something right, if you sound intelligent enough and don't just bitch them out they might get back to you and do something about the situation.
